PASTA: Cook pasta. Drain well. Transfer to a large prep bowl.
VEGETABLES: Put mixed vegetables into a microwave-safe bowl, and cover with water. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring halfway through.
MEAT: While the pasta and vegetables are cooking, preheat a skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and pancetta. After 2 minutes, add chicken breasts and raise heat to medium-high. Add crushed red pepper, if desired. Cook until chicken is fully cooked and surface is browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the meat to the large prep bowl.
SAUCE: Saute the garlic in the same skillet used for the meat. Push the garlic to one side of the skillet. Mix the flour with the pan drippings to form a paste. Reduce heat to medium and deglaze the skillet with chicken broth. Add parsley, black pepper, nutmeg, and Italian seasoning. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Reduce slightly, sauce should be fairly thin.
GARNISH: Toss pasta, vegetables, meat and sauce until evenly coated. Transfer to a serving bowl. Top with grated parmesean and fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
1) Saute fresh green peppers with garlic.
2) Add one small diced tomato to cooked pasta
